C2-01 is not qualified to be part of nokia phoneline. It lack every bit of quality nokia used to deliver
V.balaji, 07 Nov 2011Apparently both cedar , c2 are good phones but it is better to go with c2 because
-advance gp... more-my cedar and my x2 got same 2g data speeds and both are max 48kbps bandwidth unlike the class different, speed different as in samsung and nokia.
-java version is midp 2.1 in both phones. Just that gsmarena have'nt yet updated it. If doubtful, access cedar's filesys or firmware info files.
- downloads are available for all phones from all sites
- a lot of pre-loaded apps are there in cedar too.
- firmware can be updated in both and its not just one.
- 2mp camera got the clarity of 5250 and such, so which is better?
- what u think? Cedar doesnt got 3.5mm jack?
- we can add anything or everything as homescreen widget with a little files. Even set apps as wallpaper. (Corresponding file when fed into system)
- just read gsmarena review of c2-01 to know the 'magnificence' of its display. :-D
- multitasking in c2-01 (music player and opera) ? Thats not multitasking. Ok.
-rds stereo is in cedar too. Besides got stereo widening.
First atleast go check cedar or my review here, then argue please.
DEV, 08 Nov 2011Well. Good work.
Anyway not everyone was a hardcore user like you to worry about right from v... moreHahahahahahahaha.
Man will u please stop that.
Your buddies cedar got software pblms?
So far cedar's is the most stable feature phone os i've ever encountered.
Nokia and samsung java got any minor issues as usage goes. Like restarts, hangs, corrupt messages. Any such thing. But my cedar even after six months of terrible, harsh, severly careless usage didnt got a single pblm both hardware and software.
And playing vga aint hardcore use. If some s60 phone or mid-levl smartphone send u a recorded or their resolution video, you got to connect to pc to play that, well we who own cedar dont. And its called useful one and not hardcore use.
And playing vga in qvga means its super-multiplied clarity. Due to higher n.o of accumulated pixels in the video than the display. Same effect as playing a 1080i video in a computer screen. Highly defined.
And cedar got hspa 3g with 7,2mbps where ase c2-01 got umts, deadslow and waste of 3g plan if activated.
AnonD-13154, 07 Nov 2011Heres the true full-review of c2-01 and cedar.
c2- bandwidth 376kbps , no hsdp... moreWell. Good work.
Anyway not everyone was a hardcore user like you to worry about right from viewing angles to VGA(etc) video playback that too in a QVGA resolution screen.
I'm using this mobile for 6 months without any problem except restarting while applying themes and that too is very rare.
All the features specified here are working fine.
At the same time my close friend's cedar(bought 2months ago) was most of the times in service center owing to some software problems.
Mind one thing there more than specifications to go for a mobile.
i have purchased this phone and the camera is so good that u can even see the faces of people inside a running car which is at a distance of 20 feet...great phone ...use it.
This mobile is ok for d money paid.. But d camera quality is not so gud.. Its only average..! Music quality is above average..
Coming to 3G its a waste of money..! It supports only UTMS network..:( no HSDPA/HSUPA/HSPA.. The max speed is upto 384kbps only.., download speed wil become slow aftr 2months usage of tis phone.. So 3G internet packs hv to b used.. & the 3G packs cost more...!:(
if ur main use of the mobile s for txtng, networking, etc thn tis mobil is gud for u... But if ur lookin for a mobil which has vry fast internet & othr gud specs thn tis mobil is a waste for u.. So dont prefer tis mobil... Its a waste..!
vegas, 07 Nov 2011can somebody post a short video made with c201 ? I want to buy it but reviews say video is not... moreOh its not a dark video dude.
Thats the video clarity of c2-01.
I hope you got my point, c2-01 is a terrible video recorder and player
anil bharat, 07 Nov 2011nokia c2-01 is verry good fone from internet.is it true? c2-01 is from internet? wow amazing discovery made by u, i thought its from nokia ha ha ha

-latest java version
-downloads from all third party sites
-pre loaded ovi apps
-cedar has less homescreen widgets compared to c2
-multitasking can run 2 apps at a time
AnonD-13154, 07 Nov 2011Heres the true full-review of c2-01 and cedar. NETWORK 3g- c2- bandwidth 376kbps , no hsdp... moreThanks, thanks and thanks you saved my money. Now I will try to find out any other phone. By the way last time I have very bad experience with Nokia phone.

If calling me bias, explain how am i?
AnonD-13154, 28 Oct 2011Yes we know.
Any comment saying phone is nice, good, awesome, best, best in range, blah blah ... moreif one truly own c2-01, he will say all these(i do own it)
- self restarting (not even once)
- vga like camera (then you don`t even know how bad a vga camera really is. its not mindblowing but you cant really compare it to vga)
- opera showing cleared page due to low memory (maybe, didn`t happened to me yet)
- slowest 3g speed (1/4 seconds more its really lifechanging no?)
- poor display side view (who the @#$! looks at his pnone at an angle?)
- even low quality mp4 cannot be played (its a phone $%#@&ss not a video player)
- below average speaker (its a litle bit above average)
- faster battery drain in 3g (tell me wich pnone has a longer battery life in 3g? it will always be less)
